Guides to the Coinage of the Ancient World : The Hellenistic World: Using Coins as Sources Hardback
Coinage is one of our key sources for the rich and fascinating history of the Hellenistic world (323-31 BC).
This book provides students of the period with an up-to-date introduction to Hellenistic gold, silver and bronze coins in their cultural and economic contexts.
It also offers new perspectives on four major themes in contemporary Hellenistic history: globalisation, identity, political economy and ideology.
With more than 250 illustrations, and written in a lucid and accessible style, this book sheds new light on the diverse and multicultural societies of the Hellenistic world, from Alexander to Augustus.
The author assumes no prior knowledge of Hellenistic history, and all Greek and Latin texts are translated throughout.
